Avril Lavigne Has Definitely Traded Up

By: Celebuzz / October 14, 2009

Is Avril Lavigne sitting at home crying about her recent split from hubby Deryck Whibley?

Not exactly. Like, at all.

Word is that the 25-year-old singer is now dating Dole Food Company billionaire Justin Murdock. Yep, a billionare.

A source tells Star,

“Avril and Justin have been to Hawaii together but mostly they’ve been holed up at his place. Avril’s had a thing for Justin for a while.”

The pair was spotted at LA hotspot Delux back in December, while she was still with Deryck. Even now, she’s not ready to go public with her new man. “That’s fine by him – it means they’ll spend more time alone,” says the insider.
